‘Gravity’ Countdown – #2: Doing Space Wrong

I cannot wait to see Gravity. James Cameron has said it is the best space film he has ever seen and, seeing how successful the film has been in the Us, I’m inclined to believe the mad old solo-submarining geezer. From the moment I saw the first trailer for it before The Wolverine back in August, there has been no film I have anticipated more. Except The Hobbit, but that’s a given and can therefore be excluded.

The concept of characters stranded in space with nothing but their space suits to protect them from the void outside fascinates me. I love films in which a single character or a small group of characters become isolated and trapped in a seemingly inescapable situation, as they allow for an exploration of the human nature in an honest and realistic way that other films cannot. These films range from the positive and uplifting,

How Susannah York fell to Earth after the wars of the English roses

Though York couldn't maintain the Christie-like success of her 60s peak, her unusual choices made for an interesting career

There was a rage for Susannah York in the 60s like there was for Julie Christie and Vanessa Redgrave, so it seemed odd when it ended in the mid-70s. All of a sudden, the rush of good parts stopped. This seemed odd, after her Oscar nomination as best supporting actress in They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969). But then, why did she let herself take such roles as that of the superfluous wife in The Battle of Britain in the same year?

In her early career, York had seemed a conventional English beauty: as Alec Guinness's daughter in 1960's Tunes of Glory (her actual debut) and a touching lead performance the following year in Lewis Gilbert's The Greengage Summer as a young woman in France coming to sexual maturity.

Susannah York obituary

Star of Tom Jones and They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, she defied typecasting

Susannah York, who has died aged 72, was a vibrant, energetic personality with a devouring passion for work, strong political opinions and great loyalty to old friends. Her international reputation as an actor depended heavily on the hit films she made in the 1960s, including Tom Jones (1963) and They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969, for which she received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress. But, even when her movie career waned, she worked ceaselessly in theatre, often appearing in pioneering fringe productions. It was typical of her that, although diagnosed with cancer late in 2010, she refused chemotherapy and fulfilled a contractual obligation to do a tour of Ronald Harwood's Quartet.

In her early years York was often cast as an archetypal English rose. But, although born in Chelsea, south-west London (as Susannah Yolande Fletcher), she was raised

Cool Stuff: The ‘Ones That Got Away’ Posters
Most filmmakers have projects they want to make but never get around to. Maybe they can't get the funding together, maybe they lose the rights or maybe they pass away. There are famous examples of this all the way through history from Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon and Orson Welles's Don Quixote to newer projects like James Cameron's Spider-Man, Tim Burton's Superman and Peter Jackson's Halo. The list goes on and on. Artist Fernando Reza, who also did these cool TV Band posters [1], asked the question, "What If?" What if Stanley Kubrick finished Napoleon? What is Orson Welles finished Don Quixote? And he answered those questions with his new set of film posters called The Ones That Got Away; Four posters including those two aforementioned films as well as Alfred Hitchcock's Kaleidoscope and David Lean's Nostromo. Read what Reza had to say about the project,
